What an insane day I had on Tuesday! You will be tired from just reading this, so sit down and hold on.
My lacrosse daughter got home on Monday night from a tournament in Seattle. I picked her and one of her teammates from the Atlanta Airport. The airport is 45 minutes from my house in perfect conditions – which, if you know anything about Atlanta traffic, is just about NEVER.
Same daughter and I leave the house at 8:00 a.m. with two of her friends to head back to the airport to go to Minneapolis. They are spending a week with my mom and dad. Here they are right after going through security:
Do they think they are “ALL THAT” or what?? My daughter is the one in the middle. She got new glasses (usually wears contacts) that she thinks she looks smart in, so we have been seeing them on her face quite a bit lately. Makes me laugh.
Okay … here is where is starts to get nuts. I get the girls on the plane and then have to run to the car to get back home to pick up one of my twins from Band. I get her home and then have to go back down to the airport to pick up my son who is coming back from Gammie and Papa’s in MN. I can’t bear to fight the traffic AGAIN, so I take the MARTA train down. I barely make it on time and have to run to the gate. I got there right when the door opened to unload the plane. Just in the nick of time! My son and I get back on the train. Now it is 6:30 p.m. and if you have been counting, I have been down and back to the airport SIX times. I just want to get home, but the exit gate in the train parking lot has other ideas.
The damn automatic gate will not open for my car. It will not read my ticket and I am freaking out. I had to call the number on the box and beg for someone to come let me out. They sent down a supervisor (15 minutes later) to manually open the gate. What the heck??? Try to imagine how happy the cars behind me were? It was awesome. NOT.
It’s time to turn to happier things. These are 10 pictures that have really caught my eye this week. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
Is this not the coolest? How happy would you be seeing this runner down your steps everyday? All this color makes me drool!
The windows in this bedroom are beyond words! Oh and who doesn’t love a herringbone wood floor? Wow!
I love mis-matched chairs at the kitchen table. The blue color with the yellow numbers looks amazing. I love this picture!
What can I say but … Yes Please!! Delish!
Do you remember these old cut-crystal decanters sitting on your parents bar cart? How genius is this to make them into a light fixture? I can just imagine how the light refracts through the crystals onto the walls. Yes – I just used the word “refract” – do not be scared on my knowledge of light. Ha! I don’t even know if that word makes sense in that sentence – but let’s go with it!
This door has such character! Makes me want to go inside and see what magical room is behind that door!
That pop of Teal on the stove hood is amazing!
Chevron on a super cute dress! I love the little bow on the shoulder. This dress ROCKS!
This pendant lamp was made from an old whisk found at a flea market. Simple but Fantastic!
Avocado green door – I am in love and in lust!! I want this foyer!! Look at that barn door and light fixture. Could you die?
I just love these pictures – one is more inspiring than the next. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and as usual …
Hope your life is more gorgeous room heaven than havoc!
